The Meyer-Henry Family

February 27, 2023

The Meyer-Henry family from Marshalltown, IA stayed at our Blank House for 10 nights in January. On New Years Eve, Mom, Robyn, went into labor at 34.5 weeks pregnant. After arriving at the ER in Marshalltown, they found out she was already 8cm dilated. The doctors wanted her transported by ambulance to Blank Children's Hospital in Des Moines, but on the trip here it was time. Robyn gave birth to Ella Mae in the ambulance on the side of the interstate at 3:26am. After a couple weeks in the NICU, Ella Mae was healthy and ready to go home with her family!

“With living over an hour away, the Ronald McDonald House has been wonderful in giving us a warm and safe place to stay that’s closer to our little one!”
